Signify Premium Insight: Philips and Elekta See Promise in Partnership
Published: June 23, 2021
Philips and Elekta have announced that the two firms are deepening their well-established partnership in order to streamline and integrate product solutions for cancer care pathways. By strengthening their ties, the two vendors are hoping to be able to offer increasingly precise therapy for patients, shorter patient treatment times, and a lower cost of care for providers.
Unlike Philips’ German competitor Siemens Healthineers, which sought to realise similar benefits when it announced its acquisition of Elekta competitor, Varian, last year, the Dutch vendor has not sought to purchase the smaller company. Instead, in their announcement of the partnership, Philips and Elekta highlighted that their partnership is ‘preferential’ and not exclusive.
